New York City based electronic duo The Knocks will celebrate the New Year as the house DJs for MTV’s Club NYE 2013.

"We grew up glued to the TV on New Years watching the MTV concert,” states The Knocks, “so to be a part of it is really awesome. We're very excited to be in the studio when the ball drops."
